Time to Dust off Your A/C Unit and Give it a Check-up

Now that summer is here, most of us in Winnipeg will fluctuate between enjoying the beautiful weather and trying to get away from some if its more extreme temperatures. This means plenty of time enjoying our A/C. To ensure this option is always available, though, give us a call at Derksen Plumbing and Heating, so we can make sure your unit is prepared to handle this uptick in demand.

Air conditioners are deceptive machines. On the one hand, they’re generally built to be both user-friendly and extremely durable. The manufacturers know that when temperatures rise, people are going to put them through their paces. Unfortunately, this also means that they can be working sub-optimally or be in need of actual repairs, but you may not know it until it’s too late. By then, too, a much bigger problem may have had time to build. The result may be an A/C unit that’s beyond repair.

Your unit also depends on an army of components to keep you cool. This includes coil fins, filters, a swarm of wiring, evaporator coils, condenser coils and more. If any one of these components isn’t working as well as it possibly can, the whole machine will suffer.

One way to avoid these consequences is by checking out your A/C unit before running it this summer. This way you can catch any potential problems and solve them before they’re allowed to become greater. Even if serious problems don’t exist, a little maintenance could go a long way to ensuring they don’t in the future.

While we at Derksen are well known for assisting with both residential and commercial plumbing in Winnipeg, we are also experts when it comes to air conditioning units. With summer here, give our 24/7 phone line a call at 204-944-3444, and we’ll ensure you’re A/C unit is operating correctly and primed to do so for the rest of the season.
